Join Julieanne Kost to discover how to create a droplet in order to combine the Batch command and an action in a single executable file.
- [Instructor] You can create droplets in Photoshop…that are self-running applications or executables…that play actions when you drag and drop files…on top of them.…In this example, we're going to expand the canvas size…of a number of images…and add a little stamp of my signature…in that canvas or border area…and include a layer effect.…So, in order to do this,…first we'll create a set of actions,…and I'll call this Droplets.…
Then we'll record our first action…and I'll call this Add Stamp.…In order to add canvas around the image,…I'll want to change the background into a layer,…or I could just make sure that white…is the background color.…But I think it's safer to click the lock icon…to convert the background into a layer.…That way, when I choose image, canvas size,…and I add extra canvas around the photograph,…it will be transparent.…
Now I want to add an inch to the left, right, top, and bottom,…so I'm going to type in two inches for the width,…and two inches for the height,…and that way it will add one inch on either side.…
